Rocket alert sirens sounded near Ashkelon and an area near the Gaza border early Thursday morning at around 2:00 a.m. the IDF confirmed.

The army was investigating why the sirens went off and if rockets were launched.  

On Tuesday, rocket sirens sounded in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council but the army later confirmed that there was no rocket launch and the sirens were a false alarm.
